The first round of the Eastern Regional series revealed that the Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha riders have great potential for successful results this season. Dylan Ferrandis finished his first race for the team, in sixth. Colt Nichols got off to a great start but was taken down on the first lap. He fought hard to come from the back of the pack, to tenth. Mitchell Harrison was running twelfth when he crashed. He had little time to gain back positions, and finished eighteenth.
